KARACHI: A city court of Karachi on Friday gave life sentence to a man who killed his neighbor over a verbal spat, ARY News reported.
The accused Batras had murdered his neighbor over a quarrel in 2006, following which a case was registered against him in Muhammedabad police station.
The court also ordered to give Rs1 lac to heirs of the victim.
On March 1, the Supreme Court had upheld the life imprisonment to a would-be suicide bomber in Sakhi Sarwar shrine bomb attack in Dera Ghazi Khan.
The trial court had awarded 125 times life imprisonment to convict Umar Fidai, which was equal to overall 3432 years in jail.
The bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa had ordered running all sentences simultaneously.
The chief justice in his remarks had called the evidence against the convict as irrefutable.
The defence lawyer had said that his client would have injured in the attack if he had present at the scene of the bombing attack, asking how an injured person could run up to 475 feet. Not a single eyewitness of the incident was injured in the incident, the lawyer had argued.
